Living near nuclear power plants not hazardous for kids!

Washington, Sept. 14 : Children who live near nuclear power plants do not have a higher chance of developing leukaemia, a study has claimed.


For the study, experts sifted through data on 10,000 children diagnosed under five between 1962 and 2007, and where they lived, the BBC reported.

The information was taken from the National Registry of Childhood Tumours that keeps records on nearly all kids who have been diagnosed with cancer since 1962 and which is linked to birth records for kids born in Britain.

The researchers also compared the information with data on more than 16,000 children suffering from different types of cancers.

The study found that there was no apparent higher risk of acquiring childhood leukaemia or non-Hodgkin lymphoma among children living near nuclear power plants.

The study has been published in the British Journal of Cancer.
